When Dyan Law and her husband, Cory, were looking for a place to relocate after moving to the Wasatch Front from the Uintah Basin, they settled on the Cresthaven Apartments in Lehi, just up the hill from Cabela’s and the Outlets at Traverse Mountain.

The home was close to work for Cory — a corrections officer at the Utah State Prison in Draper — and was surrounded by shops, schools and easy access to the freeway for Dyan’s job as an intensive-care nurse at the University of Utah Hospital in Salt Lake City.

Oh … and the apartments were pet-friendly. A must for Dyan and her family.

“We just happened to find this great place for us and our dog, and we have everything we need right here,” Dyan says. “The high school is a mile and a half away and the elementary school is a half-mile away.”

Dyan and her family — which includes three girls still at home — moved to Lehi in June of this year and have already found a place where they feel a sense of community with all the benefits of amenities galore at their fingertips.


Hosting With the Mosting

While hosting out-of-town guests can be stressful, Dyan finds that living in Traverse Mountain makes her eager to share her area.

“There is plenty of stuff to do when family comes into town,” Dyan says. “Not only that, but everything is close.”


“I love living so close to the Outlets,” Dyan says. “I was dreading school shopping with a daughter in high school and two in elementary school. Surprisingly, we did all of our school shopping at one time and in one place.”

Dyan’s new home was so close to the new Mountain Point Medical Center that she began working night shifts in the ICU there.

“Being so close to Mountain Point Medical Center is what made it so I could work there,” Dyan says. “It’s convenient. I don’t even really consider it a commute at all.”

But more than shops and schools and even hospitals — living at the Point of the Mountain has been filled with new neighbors and fun friends.

“We have met people from all over,” Dyan says. “We’ve developed friendships this summer just from spending time down by the pool.”

The area is also the perfect location for Dyan’s family and the stage they are at in their lives. With busy schedules, eating at home is rare.

“We have three girls and we go out to eat a lot,” she says. “This area has so many great restaurants — and it seems like there’s a new one every day. We love to try things.”

Healthy Addiction

Dyan Law is a registered nurse and works in the intensive care unit at Mountain Point Medical Center, just east of the freeway in Lehi’s Traverse Mountain. The addition of Mountain Point Medical Center means more convenient care for residents and visitors of Traverse Mountain.

Mountain Point Medical Center, a campus of Jordan Valley Medical Center, is a 44-bed full-service hospital serving the residents of northern Utah County. The hospital offers heart care, imaging services, a clinical laboratory, emergency care, women’s services and surgical services — as well as the intensive care unit Dyan works in.
